Real shocker! Hillary Clinton edited emails that were turned over to the State Dept; Updated

The setup: Last month Hillary Clinton said “I want those emails out” ASAP.

The punchline:

Hillary Clinton withheld Benghazi-related emails from the State Department that detailed her knowledge of the scramble for oil contracts in Libya and the shortcomings of the NATO-led military intervention for which she advocated.

Clinton removed specific portions of other emails she sent to State, suggesting the messages were screened closely enough to determine which paragraphs were unfit to be seen by the public.

For example, one email Clinton kept from the State Department indicates Libyan leaders were “well aware” of which “major oil companies and international banks” supported them during the rebellion, information they would “factor into decisions” about about who would be given access to the country’s rich oil reserves.

The email, which Clinton subsequently scrubbed from her server, indicated Clinton was aware that involvement in the controversial conflict could have a significant financial benefit to firms that were friendly to the Libyan rebels.

When Hillary said she “wants the emails out” she obviously meant thrown out.

And this will really stun you — but probably not. Hillary’s claim that long time Clintonista slimeball Sidney Blumenthal’s emails to her were unsolicited was another total lie:

Hillary Rodham Clinton told reporters last month that the memos about Libya she received while secretary of state from Sidney Blumenthal, a longtime adviser whom the Obama administration had barred her from hiring, had been “unsolicited.”

But according to officials briefed on the matter, email records that Mrs. Clinton apparently failed to turn over to the State Department last fall show that she repeatedly encouraged Mr. Blumenthal to “keep ’em coming,” as she said in an August 2012 reply to a memo from him, which she called “another keeper.”

And yet Hillary remains a media darling and the Dem front-runner.

Update:

The State Department released another batch of emails that Hillary didn’t previously delete. This batch was hand-selected to turn over to the department and edited by Team Hillary. Is there much of interest? Of course not. The entire point is that she kept a private server for just such control, and yet the media are digging through this email dump as if there might actually be something there.

Here’s my favorite: An email exchange from December of 2009:

Huma Abedin: “can you hang up the fax line, they will call again and try fax”

Clinton: “I thought it was supposed to be off hook to work?”

Abedin: “Yes but hang up one more time. So they can reestablish the line.”

Clinton: “I did.”

Abedin: “Just pick up the phone and hang it up. And leave it hung up.”

Clinton: “I’ve done it twice now.”

It reminded me of this:
